1) That the College (CRNBC) and the Union (BCNU) both fulfill vital functions for our profession
BC nurses need to remain self-regulating
BC nurses need a strong union that can advocate on matters of remuneration, working conditions and benefits
2) That the BC nursing profession requires a strong, united provincial policy voice.
3) That BC nurses deserve to have full engagement with a national and international nursing policy voice through the Canadian Nurses Association and the International Council of Nurses.
